Quilted Card Trinket Box

For months I've been itchin' to make a trinket box using the matchbox die from Stampin' Up! but I couldn't find good instructions and when I did find some I found I lacked motivation.  FINALLY, I did muster up motivation and  then couldn't locate the instructions.
Well this week I had motivation and even without instructions I made the trinket box for my son's girlfriend.  I used the quilt card tutorial by Jenna Barber on Splitcoaststampers. The color combo's and actual trinket box were cased from another poster but I can't remember who. If it was you
and you're reading this posting, email me so I can give you proper credit.

I love how this came out so I'm sure I'll be making more. The matchbox die is so versatile, I just love making goodies with it!

In making this I've used Springtime Vintage DSP, Very Vanilla, Soft Suede and pink Pirouette cardstock. To give the top and base a little extra support I used the lightweight chipboard that comes with the DSP. It's the perfect weight for reinforcement on these projects.

Hope you enjoy looking at this project and will want to try one yourself. Happy Stamping!
